Shootout At The Sands Cancelled

Due to low pre-registration, CSI regrettably announces the Shootout at the Sands, which was scheduled August 14-23, 2009, has been cancelled. These dates were the only dates available at the Sands in 2009. Both CSI and the management at the Sands are working together to reschedule the event for next year. The tournament featured several divisions, including an open doubles, men's 8-Ball, men's 10-Ball, women's 8-Ball and women's 10-Ball. The event did not have sufficient early entries to justify the generous $15,000 added by the host hotel, Terrible's Sands Regency Hotel and Casino, Reno, NV. All those who pre-registered have been contacted and their entry money refunded.
It was not an easy decision to make as the Terrible's Sands Hotel and Casino is a tremendous supporter of pool and has added hundreds of thousands of dollars to tournaments over the past 25 years including the U.S Bar Table Championships and the Reno Open. However, continuing its support of pool, the Terrible's Sands Regency in Reno will once again be hosting the 2010 U.S Bar Table Championships February 22-28. The well regarded event will be entering its 17th year.
